Default Re: Pioneer DFP/ GeForce4 DVI-HDMI Finally got 1080i but doesn't look right...

Hey thanks for the tip,
I am going to try it out. I just got a new job a couple weeks ago and I'm spending tonight hanging out with a few of my co-workers. I'll definitely be around tomorrow though, but don't be compelled to come on here on my behalf if you'd rather be doing something else although I do know it satisfies geeks (myself included of course) to see problems and work towards a solution ! I really appreciate the help you've provided me so far...

"ExactModeTimingsDVI" "FALSE"
"DPI" "100x100"

Did not seem to help. Is it possible that the GeForce4 Ti4400 will simply not run 1920x1080i correctly or that the drivers are bugged for this configuration?

If I get around to it tomorrow I may swap out the 4Ti4400 for the 7800 in my other box just to see.

I did not read the complete thread, but I'll anyway ask: are you sure your TV can receive, by DVI, interlaced signals?

I am fairly sure that it can since Windows booted at 1920x1080i.

Well, ehm, how did you know it was 1080i and not 1080p?
I mean, you could have set windows to 1080i, but it could have switched to 1080p without telling anything to anybody.
Or not?

The plasma screen display read 1080i in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

MIne's already posted earlier in this thread. It runs a Projection TV (CRT) quite nicely. The odd modeline was developed to eliminate the need to use "overscan" tools.

you need to use 'newer' drivers in order for the driver to properly support interlaced resolutions... i believe its 9x.xx series and later only otherwise you have to use powerstrip... i have a 1080i Sanyo 30" CRT HDTV over DVI-HDMI

I tried your xorg.conf rerushg but I get 640x480 . . .

I've attached my xorg.conf, it's not that much different from yours.

My Philips FTV can do 1080i on DVI, I know this for sure, cause my other OS supports it too. It seems the video driver just ignores modelines, as soon as I create modelines I end up in 640x480 With the default settings I end up in 1280x720 which is OK, but is not the native res of my display and has a lot of overscan

Thanks for helping. Should I open a new topic for this problem? I think it is the same...

This thread should do just fine.
Would you post the X log file in verbose please?
Thanks.

Swapped out the GF4 Ti4400 for the GF7800 and it worked, except everything was still off the screen? Is there anyway I can just choose a slightly smaller screen resolution to fix the problem? Like 1900x1000 or something? Do I have to add a custom modeline? Or just change the Mode List?
